I love the two salmon cafe buffet. We have enjoyed going as a group for good food and friendly service. Sadly, they are going to be tearing it down and putting other restaurants in it's place. We will give the new place a try once it is in, but the buffet will be missed!

The server at the carving station was very frugal when it came to slicing the prime rib even though it was an all you can eat prime rib. The food was replenished very slowly. Food was mediocre and limited in variety.

Been going down hill ever since before construction started. By comparison to Skagit the food is no where near as good, nor is the menu. They got a new chef and things have improve greatly. Maybe the cure for Two Salmons is in the upper staff as well. Queuing at check in is part of the problem but the buffet needs help as well. Many times during the week and weekend the choices are not very appetizing.

Good options for a buffet at a good price. The property is on the water with a beautiful view. There is gaming in a small casino environment with friendly staff.
We had early easter lunch and family birthdays. Enjoyable experience.

Always great variety of seafood on Friday nights. Love all you can eat crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, oysters, fish and variety of other buffet items. Full meal in Ludington drink and dessert. Drinks from bar offered for add on fee. Delicious. .

The website shows "Pacific Rim Cuisine" on Thursday night. When I looked up the definition it showed - typical food of the Pacific area but with an Asian flavor/cooking style. (One of the examples it gave was teriyaki salmon.) The only seafood on the whole buffet was the small shrimp available for the Pad Thai. When reading the website I understood there were certain foods that were nightly with specials added for the theme; did not seem to be the case. We were definitely expecting some sort of fish (maybe Salmon - reference the name of the restaurant), crab, or clam. Reference the price we knew it would not be much but maybe something from the northwest. We definitely felt for a casino buffet it was extremely limited on entrees. The salad bar area was nice. The deserts were disappointing.
The hostess was exceptionally friendly, our waitress great and if I considered only those two reference service I would have had to say excellent, but the gentleman behind the buffet was nearly rude when I asked about the Pad Thai.

We enjoyed the casual atmosphere in the cafe. There was an uncomfortable wait for the line to move before we were seated. That was seemingly unnecessary; maybe another way to check in those with reservations opposed to others trying to fit in somewhere would be a good idea.
The food was good; not exceptional! The prime rib was also O.K! The mashed potatoes container was empty; I could have asked for a refill but didn't. The green beans & salads were satisfactory. My family enjoyed the crab legs & shrimp. But I was hesitant to eat shrimp due to recent ads on Facebook about them being injected in Asia to "plump them up" for sales. Posting that the seafood is "fresh or local" would be advised. One other complaint is that the dessert selection was scarce. Offered were bread pudding, a cobbler, and scattered slices of pie or unappetizing cake. It was not appealing!
The fact that it provided a venue for dinner on Christmas Day was appreciated. $29.99 a person seemed pricey for the quality of food.

My husband and I have been here many, many times for the Friday and Sunday seafood/prime rib buffets and a couple times for the BBQ/Pacific Rim dinners. Normally the quality of the food is exceptional, but we went yesterday for Christmas dinner and everything was really subpar. It seemed like maybe they were understaffed in all aspects, from the servers to the cooks in the back. They ran out of plates multiple times and we couldn't get anyone to stop to refill our water glasses. The gentleman who was supposed to be cutting the prime rib was missing in the back kitchen half the time, along with the maybe two servers who were there. But what was really disappointing was the quality of the food. We've been here so many times when the seafood was really moist and fresh, but the crab legs were so dry and seemed like they'd been sitting out for a day. The selection of dishes was nowhere near as extensive as it usually is, but they advertised a ton of extra food for Christmas. Overall it was just relatively disappointing, especially because last year everything was really wonderful. It seems like dinners here are becoming more hit and miss, but if you happen to come on a "hit" day, consider yourself lucky—when the food is good, it's really good. I'd skip it on a special occasion because what we got yesterday wasn't worth the price at all.

The food was good although about half of the dungeoness crab that I grabbed appeared to have been in the freezer to long it either lost it flavor and or seemed freezer burnt the clams and muscles were very good and also it would be nice if they mixed up the deserts a little we go there fairly often and the deserts are always the same old thing and not the best quality.

Sunday night Crab & Prime Rib buffet is a great deal! They have other items too, but we usually concentrate on the crab (local Dungeness and Queen), and the prime rib. If you join their casino membership, you'll get the 10% senior discount (50+), plus extra discounts in your birthday month. Good, steady service. A bit loud from the waterfalls. but we weren't there to chat!

My parents are 'regulars' for the Tuesday special and we try to join them as often as possible. I made reservations for this last time because we had out of town company and family helping us celebrate my mom's 90th birthday. Our toddler grandson was not into sitting down to eat much so my husband took him for a walk at the entrance where an employee saw him and gave him a stuffed animal which was very thoughtful. Our waitress didn't come around quite as often as I had thought she would to check on us all and my mom didn't get her glass of water til almost done with meal and I hoped the waitress would lead everyone in singing happy birthday to mom but she didn't (but mom probably wouldn't have wanted the attention anyway!) Food was great as always though...and of course the price can't be beat!

To whom it may concern,

My father spoke with the restaurant staff, asking if they could supply balloons and a candle or something, staff said they would speak with a supervisor and check into it. Later that day the manager phoned him back and stated (in a message) that she would be happy to put balloons at the table and provide a desert (included in the buffet) with a candle in it at the end o-f the meal. We still have that message. My dad was thrilled, called her back and left a message stating that would be perfect. When we arrived and were seated there were no balloons or mention of any occasion, and no candle was brought out either. My dad was very disappointed. He would have planned differently had the manager not said she could do something and confirmed such. He stated that he wished she had just plain said,"no we don't/can't do anythingfor you." That way he could have done something himself. The food was great and besides the boy in the cast pouring water all over our table and then not wiping it up, the service was good too. However, because of what happened, our family will not be returning.

Sincerely,
Alisa Garcia

We've been there a few times now and really enjoy the seafood buffet. Unfortunately they have been understaffed with wait staff every time we go. Lots of bus help but usually only one server and she has the whole buffet section to handle and therefore drinks, refills and clean plates and utensils are the parts of the buffet that epically fail!
